Gynaecology Profile Image

Gynaecology

Gynaecology deals with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts.

Gynaecological conditions include

  • Cancer and pre-cancerous diseases of the reproductive organs including ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva
  • Incontinence of urine
  • Amenorrhoea (absent menstrual periods)
  • Dysmenorrhoea (painful menstrual periods)
  • Infertility
  • Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual periods)
  • Prolapse of pelvic organs
  • Infections of the vagina (vaginitis), cervix and uterus (including fungal, bacterial, viral, and protozoal)
  • UTI and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Premenstrual Syndrome 

This can potentially increase your risk of contracting lower genital tract infections including sexually transmitted diseases. It may be better for your partner to wash before engaging in vaginal sex with you in this case.

Sorry to hear about your previous history of ectopic pregnancies. This has some relevance since the conditions that lead to an increased risk for ectopic pregnancy are likely to affect both tubes in the pelvis, rather than just one side (since both tubes are connected to the uteru...

Hi, unfortunately I cannot advise via an online platform whether any discomfort post operation is considered “normal and ok”, as there are a host of factors to take into account. This would include a proper examination, more details of the op and nature of the discomf...

Generally speaking the oral contraceptive pill effects only should last for one day which is why you need to take the oral contraceptive pills daily for them to be effective. Once you stop taking them, the side effects should be gone within a few days. This also applies to its...

Dear ZY For a young lady with a history of irregular menses, we will always consider polycystic ovaries as a possible cause. Other possible causes include severe stress, hormonal disorders such as thyroid problems, prolactin producing tumours (prolactin is a hormone necessary for production of br...
